CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Emerging Professionals Internship Program is a six-week program that gives internship opportunities to High School senior students who want to get ahead in the workforce and start adding experience to their curriculum and education. 

With the internship program, students learn essential skills for the workplace and can also take dual credit classes at Del Mar College.

"Number one, you're getting the benefit of an employee, number two you're partnering with us to develop the workforce in our area and most importantly you're developing a pipeline into an organization for future talent and future leaders here in the Coastal Bend," program coordinator Jeffrey West said.
